Proverbs 27:17

Proverbs 27:17

Tuesday, May 30, 2023


Absolutely agree with what Kershaw. You don’t bring people to Christ by telling them how awful they are or how bad what they believe in is. You show people the difference that Christ has made in your life, so they say, “I want that in my life.”

Can’t believe the Dodgers are doing this. Stay out of politics. You’ll never win.



Did you see Kershaw's quotes about the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence? High road stuff. I really respect his thought process, or at least the thought process of whoever pointed him in this direction. 


“I don’t agree with making fun of other people’s religions,” he said. “It has nothing to do with anything other than that. I just don’t think that, no matter what religion you are, you should make fun of somebody else’s religion. So that’s something that I definitely don’t agree with.”


“For us, we felt like the best thing to do in response was, instead of maybe making a statement condemning or anything like that, would be just to instead try to show what we do support, as opposed to maybe what we don’t,” Kershaw said. “And that was Jesus. So to make Christian Faith Day our response is what we felt like was the best decision.”


“It’s our opportunity to be able to kind of share our testimony of what we believe in and why we believe in it, and how that affects our performance on the field,” Kershaw said, later adding: “It’s a great opportunity to see the platform that Jesus has given us and how to use that for his glory and not ours.”


“This has nothing to do with the LGBTQ community or pride or anything like that,” Kershaw said. “This is simply a group that was making fun of a religion, that I don’t agree with.”


“As a follower of Christ, we’re supposed to love everybody well,” Kershaw said. “And I think that means being able to be at a lot of different places and be able to be a part of a lot of different things.”

“I think in these situations, instead of maybe criticizing or trying to find something wrong with a group, it’s better just to focus on what you do believe in,” Kershaw said. “For me, that’s Jesus. So I think that was our best response.”


From my point of view, it's easy for most to respect Kershaw on this. Instead of a knee-jerk reaction of inflaming the situation, he stands firm with his own beliefs, separating them from actions of people with whom he does not agree. That's what I find so awful about today's politicians. They inflame because that tact gets more emotion and votes. That's where "us vs. them" is nurtured and the national divide deepens.

The Dodgers could've come out of this unscathed if they had used Kersh's tact initially. It fascinates me...
